Download classic/old versions of Paint Shop Pro

In October 2004, Corel Corporation purchased Jasc Software, and with it, the distribution rights to Paint Shop Pro. Originally called simply Paint Shop, the first version, 1.0, was released in early 1992.

Paint Shop was originally distributed as shareware, but is now sold in the United States for US$99.99, or US$59.99 for an upgrade from version 7 or higher, which is considerably lower than the price of its main competition, Adobe Photoshop. International prices vary but there is always a price advantage over Photoshop.

Some of the early releases of Paintshop weighed in at a whopping 231kb. These earlier releases have a small memory footprint and are excellent graphic editors for older computers. It’s cool to be able to go back and try out these older versions and see the evolution of such a wonderful product right before your eyes.

Hi, welcome to Paintshopblog. Graphics editing in Paint Shop Pro is an addicting, but productive hobby of mine. I created this blog to archive, share, and help others using the knowledge I have gained. I am by no means an expert, nor a professional graphics artist. I consider myself nothing more than a dedicated Paint Shop Pro hobbyist. Hopefully the content and resources that I share here will be beneficial to some people. Contact me below if you have any questions or need additional support with a tutorial. Thanks for stopping by!
